lisa, what we have in america is animal ga mation of people who have joined together as one who have joined together as one, that being americans and when we add hyphenations into that, irrespective, and certainly abbey thurston, i applaud her, a great scholar, but i disagree we are americans and to say it is perfectly ok to interchange one for the other with your color or whether you're black. i'm an american first. when i walked into the studio, i did not walk in as black. i did not walk in as black anything. i walked in as michael, an american. that allows me to become comfortable within myself. i owe no one nothing but myself. did i get up and work today? did i give something to my community? did i do something to enhance what i do, work-wise and so forth. >> others don't say i'm chinese or french american or anything else. glenn: please. >> i want to get to barack. a lot of people voted for barack. i think they didn't vote for him because he was black, because once you become conservative you are no longer black and we know what that's about. glenn: i'm going to come back to you
